Fanmi M, Men Yo!(“My Family, There They Are!”) is a series of abstract photographs of queer Haitians in history, culture, and the current reality. The work, created as a Lakou NOU 2022 artist-in-residence with Haiti Cultural Exchange, celebrates and acknowledges the fluidity of queer Haitians, honoring their ability to imagine and create kind futures for the queer community in New York, Haiti and around the world.
Lakou NOU features collaborative community-based art projects that explore what it means to be Haitian American—to belong to two cultures, two worlds—and to be Black in America while also staying true to your heritage.
By constructing sets of intimate living spaces, and positioning both Black and Haitian Americans in these re-imagined realities, Haiti To Hood examines the social dynamics within Haitian-American identity.
